APPT headerIt’s time for the June 2019 A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! This month’s kit is called A Little Smile. It’s beach themed kit that makes 16 gift cards and envelopes with a box to hold them. I used the kit to create a full sized card and a little treat holder.

Be sure to hop around to all the stops to see all the alternative projects this talented group of stampers has made using the A Little Smile kit!

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Coastal Cabana card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Crumb Cake CS layer cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″

  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base
  • Coastal Cabana envelope from the kit scored 1/2″ from the bottom and from both sides

Stamped with the A Little Smile stamp set:

  • sentiment in Coastal Cabana ink onto a die cut label from the kit, near one end

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • shortened the stamped label, using another label as a template, to match the curve
  • envelope flap trimmed along the score lines

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • two trimmed card fronts glued onto the Whisper White CS layer
  • Whisper White CS layer glued onto the Crumb Cake CS layer
  • anchor trinket strung onto the twine from the kit, then the twine wrapped around the layers, with the ends secured onto the back using Tear & Tape
  • anchor secured in place using a Mini Glue Dot

  • stamped label tucked into the twine and secured using Mini Glue Dots
  • Crumb Cake CS layer adhered onto the front of the card base using Tear & Tape
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

Assembled the treat holder:

  • burnished the folds in the envelope with a Bone Folder

  • twine tied around the treat holder and tied in a bow

The card: I tried to create a reflection of mountains and sky. It isn’t a perfect mirrored image, but I think you get the idea.A Little Smile June 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin' Up!, alternative projects for the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities blog hop, made by Candy Ford #stampcandy

 

The treat bag: I made a simple tag that matched the card, and attached it using a copper library clip from the Tags & More Accessory Kit. A Little Smile June 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin' Up!, alternative projects for the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities blog hop, made by Candy Ford #stampcandy
